Is it just me, or does no one else understand what was just said in the last couple posts?



The bulkheads are just anodized a different color.

Guo Chean,i agree with u... Eventhough we're from Malaysia, we're in the TEAM (supposedly), but we do not help each other... I rather spend some time surfing the net to find out everthing by myself, aleast i can understand what is wrong and happening,they will only look down on beginners... Frankly, i will not share a single information with them... they are not worth helping... i think they're thinking the same way too... i should listen to u earlier, get a 415MSX... atleast Chee Yong is more sincere,readly to lead...

Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought the revised upper bulkhead which came out a good few months ago is now a standard part on the normal Cyclone and it's just the first few batches of the Cyclone which do not have these strengthened bulkheads?

What's the difference and advantage / disadvantage of one over the other?

Hi Guys,

I am looking at running a spool for the first time with my Cyclone Surikarn Edition but I'm just concerned because when I have run a spool in my previous cars, they have had excess chatter in the CVDs. How is this with the Cyclone and what differences in setup have you guys found to be advisable with going from a oneway to a spool??

I've not run a spool much in the past because the car didn't seem to be very good with it, and was wearing parts really quick because of the chatter. I always just use a Oneway instead, but now I think a Spool may be the way to go.

Hi Simon,

I have been running a spool in my Hara for a couple of months now (using 7-9t mods). I have had no issues with my spool in that time or any other drive train part. My only advice would be to use lots of Tamiya anti wear grease on the spool outdrives and cvd pins along with all of the drive train parts (ie. rear diff outdrives, cvd joints)

I have noticed no chatter from the front end whatsoever, however, I only run about 19 degrees (l/r) steering - measured off a setup station.

Also, you might want to make sure that you use locktite on the grub screws on the spur gear adaptor, and both direct drive pulleys.

Even the standard driveshafts(V.2) have held up with no problems whatsoever.

Hope this helps.

Leonard.
